Aruba Networks Dives Deep Into IoT With ClearPass Profiler And IoT-Ready Switches
AWS wasn't the only company making Internet of Things news. Aruba Networks, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise subsidiary, expanded its own IoT technology portfolio this week in a bid to snag a share of a market that IDC expects to reach $1.7 trillion by 2020.
Topping the list of new product offerings is the ClearPass Universal Profiler, a network access control system that channel partners can offer as a service. ClearPass Universal Profiler automatically identifies and "fingerprints" IoT devices on multi-vendor wired and wired networks, helping protect organizations from security threats posed by unknown endpoint and IoT devices.
The company also debuted the new 2540 Series IoT-ready switches, which are optimized for small- and medium-density IoT enterprise edge deployments.
